  1. citrix vpn

    Add support for Citrix Netscaler as a VPN provider in the SCCM console. The provider exists in the Intune web console, but not in the ConfigMgr console.

    • LiveFlow of DP to Network

      Currently there is no centralized way within ConfigMgr to determine if the expected desire of boundaries for content / site assignment works as expected. As boundaries can be configured in multiple ways (subnet, ad, range etc) and also allows to fallback between different servers - it would be good to allow insight into what clients from what networks are connecting to a DP to retrieve content. This would allow if the current design works as expected.

      Information that would be useful for on-prem DP;
      1. Devices (COUNT?) connecting from network (initial octets/subnet-mask)
      2. Connectivity type: local, remote, fallback etc...
      3.…

        Totally agree. Having realtime visibility into what boundaries clients are in RIGHT NOW, and thus which DPs (and peer clients) they will use is critical. We’ve been talking about this internally for awhile. There are innovations on our roadmap in this area.

      • translate configmgr related popups on non english windows clients properly, or make it possible to customize popups and notifications

        software center notifications are not translated properly, if u use a non english windows client. it would be great to correct this or give our customers the possibility to customize these popup messages.

        • When running the "Modify site database configuration" option, allow support for keeping SQL servername the same

          When going through the process of changing the configuration for the site database (in order to move it to a new SQL server), if you are keeping your SQL server name the same, the wizard will not allow you to input the same SQL server name as the old. We want to get rid of our SQL 2008 R2 servers running on Windows 2008 R2 and replace with Server 2016 and SQL 2016, but also keep the same hostname for the new server. Our only option since the wizard doesn't support this scenario is to do a backup and restore.

          • O365 ADR for New Office Installs

            We have the ability to setup ADR's for O365 updates, but we need the ability to create O365 ADR's for downloads and deployments of the newest O365 Installers to new images that do not have O365 installed yet.

            • Display what distribution point is being used during a task sequence.

              When using a task sequence I would like to know what DP is being used since we have multiple DPs and would hope that I'm not using one on the other side of town. IE......Applying Operating System from "Distribution Point" or Installing Application from "Distribution Point."

                  • Upgrade Operating System Task should be able to use Windows Servicing Content and Allow user interaction

                    Problem:
                    • Current state of windows 10 servicing via upgrade sequence requires full media to take the client through setup.
                    o Full media is 2x the size of existing ESD (upgrade content)
                    o The Upgrade Operating System step does not allow the end user to defer the reboot nor does it warn the user of a reboot pending once setup has been kicked off

                    I. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit the administrator to reference windows 10 servicing content

                      Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Updating status to Noted.

                      RE: Adam Leinss
                      If there’s a restart from an internal operation like upgrade/Setup.exe, the default is 30 seconds. That can be controlled using the Task Sequence variable SMSTSRebootDelay, the message can be set with SMSTSRebootMessage.

                    • Collection Expiration

                      Provide an option to "expire" a collection where it gets removed (or at lease collection evaluations are disabled) on a specified date. This would help with the collection evaluator from becoming overloaded with processing Pilot/Test collections that were "forgotten".

                      • OSD Task Sequence Restart Computer step needs "if reboot pending" option

                        Please add to the Restart Computer OSD task sequence step an option that will check if the system requires a reboot and then only restart the computer if it needs to. Right now to work around this need, we have to execute a PowerShell script and write the results to a custom task sequence variable and then use that variable as a condition on the Restart Computer step. Adding this option natively would be much more elegant. Attached is the script we're using.

                            We would like to be able to utilize asset information in the way that you can with hybrid Intune, without having to use hybrid Intune. AS far as i can tell, this is not currently possible in any other way.

                            • Option to use proxy only for syncing from internet (and not between SUPs)

                              When configuring proxy for SUP syncing, the same proxy will be used not only to sync updates from internet on primary SUP, but also to sync from primary SUP to other SUPs.
                              This creates a problem in a scenario where proxy is only allowed to access internet, since without it we can not sync from internet, and with it we can't sync between SUPs.

                                Currently we can only add one command line per task. Can that be changed to add support for multiple command lines and only return the error code on the resulting script? This would allow for much faster development and trouble-shooting in task sequences.

                                • Preflight checks support in OSD for Win10 upgrades

                                  Provide a better way to support preflight checks for OS upgrades in terms of success/error being shown to users. Being able to show users a warning sign instead of a hard stop error would give better user experience. Currently, we either get "Installed successful" message, with having continue on error checked, or hard stop or scary error message that's presented to users if requirements aren't met. Everyone uses preflight checks now for OSD, please support it better with better notifications (customized) and error/warning handling.

                                    Thanks for the feedback – updating status to Noted. See https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgreng/2016/03/11/configmrguv/

                                    As mentioned there’s some excellent samples provided from our MVP community. We’ll likely break this item to distinct pieces e.g. expanding Check Readiness step to test for Battery/Is Wired etc.

                                    As well as preflight using /Compat prior to upgrade can help with finding issues before deployment. For 1806 that will now run without stopping CCMExec (setting ProvisioningMode).
                                    Coupled with using /Compat for upgrade Windows produced SetupDiag to help diagnose upgrade blockers in more detail – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/setupdiag

                                  • Be able to Set autologon during TS for Kiosk PCs

                                    Hello,

                                    It would be wonderful if we could set Autologon during task sequence since we can create really nice provisinog package from ADK and use DISM during WinPe to set assigned access to a certain account and app.

                                    It would be awesome if we could somehow stop SCCM to remove autologon when TS is completed so we dont have to create workarounds after the TS is completed.

                                    • Re-think task sequence policy download in OS

                                      Currently deployed task sequences create a lot of policy download and slow down the initialisation of a workstation. If they worked like in bootable media, or another way - I don't know if say downloading the TS policies as a zip would help?

                                        • Suppress user logon while using Task Sequences outside of OSD that require a restart

                                          When using task sequences to deploy applications or settings that require a restart, please include a check box on the "Restart Computer" action to suppress the user logon actions (ie. Ctrl + Alt + Del).
